Weir Cottage is the perfect place for you to unwind and relax. We are in the heart of the Haute Vienne, surrounded by a river and with our own 2 acre lake (you are welcome to fish).

The gite is for 2 people and has use of our above-ground pool and jacuzzi, it has it's own BBQ etc outside, an ideal romantic getaway. When you come over our bridge you enter, what our other guests have described as a 'piece of paradise' and we look forward to welcoming you.

Have seen many photos of this place but none that do it justice.The skies at night are unbelievable.I enjoyed the property having a stream on two sides with a direct view from the opening back window to allow a sight & sound experience. The location is perfect for a relaxing break from a busy lifestyle.Imagine...

The pictures don't do this place justice. If you are looking for peace and tranquillity set in beautiful countryside and on the edge of a picturesque village, then this is the place to stay. You will find a warm welcome from your hosts who were great company but allowed us the peace and privacy we were looking for.

Thanks very much for taking the time to review our gite. We are so happy that you enjoyed your time with us and found the relaxation you were looking for. We hope to see you again.

About the neighbourhood
The local town of Châteauponsac, although small has quite a lot to offer; a local museum (a regular tardis), a lovely old roman church and bridge (which has just been renovated), bar / restaurants, shops and other useful things such as banks, supermarket with 24hr petrol and vet if you bring your dog . You can find Kayaking lessons, swimming and cyling at the local camping grounds, which also offers organised events during July and August and, of course the fetes and vide greniers (car boot sale).

The area, with its many hills, lakes and rivers, is superb for outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, photography, bird watching and painting, it was certainly good enough for the famous artist Fred Yates, who lived locally until just before his recent death. Lac de Saint-Pardoux. is only...
